How to be heard and understood

Do you want to be heard and understood? Do you want to be touched and moved? Do you want people to listen to you, to see you, and recognize that within you, which is uniquely yours? Well, people will deliver those experiences to you, at a level, nearly always significantly less, than you cater those experiences for others. And, through the law of averages, or call it karma if you like, we all get pretty close to the deal we strike with life, and with each-other.

We receive attention to the degree we pay attention.

We receive attention to the degree we pay attention. If things have not worked out, don't worry, the contract is not final, and there is still time to make it worse — or perhaps better. Life is a grand barter. Everything is a relationship, and everything is negotiable. Through greater awareness, your super-relationship, which is your relationship with everything, can elegantly negotiate all of your transactions in life, for better or for worse. Whether it will be better or worse depends on just how deeply you are willing to open yourself, so that others may open themselves to you.

“We receive attention to the degree we pay attention.”
This is so true.
Listening is a gift for the listener as well as the one being heard.
My mother has always been a WONDERFUL listener, knowing no stranger and remembering details about everyone she has ever made contact with !
Even with her failing memory , she asks nurses about their children and parents , and remembers conversations that of course she initiated.
She is so loved by so many and I think her listening has been one of her unconditionally loving attributes making her loved by so many!
